Agree with bondo, any hardware or ***-mart should have a decent assortment or swivel bases that Im sure you could modify to do the job.

dodge vans

Chrysler made the ones used in ford vans, so if you need a matching set you should be able to check both dodge and ford for some with little wear.

How about a swivel from a living room chair/lounger or office chair. You should be able to find 'em cheap at a used home/office furniture outlet.

I wouldn't use anything that was not originally intended to be in a vehicle.

I should have included the word seat.

No on the vise grips, but I had one once that the clip to retain the window crank was missing and the crank would fall on the floor every time the door was shut.
